it was ok
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read in June, 2012

i was a huge Little House fan growing up... i must have read the series at least 7 or 8 times. i thought for sure i'd love this as well, but i just couldn't get into it. it seemed disjointed - at times research & exploration, at times anecdotal (such as the author's experiences with the American Girl Doll francise, and it's links to the Little House series), and at times literary critique.

to be honest, i realized when reading this that i just don't want to analyze a series i love so much. i don't want to think critically about it - i simply want to think about them with nostaligia, as well as look forward to reading them again with my kids.
